Arizona Coyotes Rumors: Chychrun Trade On the Way

The Jakob Chychrun sweepstakes appear to FINALLY be coming to a close. Per the Arizona Coyotes PR department, Chychrun was a healthy scratch for the team's contest against the St. Louis Blues due to "trade related reasons." 

Chychrun has been in the rumor mill since last season, but now it seems that this ongoing saga will soon be over given this latest development. This is major news, as Chychrun is a star defenseman and has had an abundance of teams linked to him because of the process. However, at the time of this writing, the Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs have been ruled out by NHL insider Jeff Marek.

We will now need to check our phones nonstop, as a Chychrun trade could be announced at any moment. Teams to watch at this juncture are the Boston Bruins, Los Angeles Kings, Detroit Red Wings, and Florida Panthers. Let's see where he ends up from here.
